It’s officially the hottest day of the year in Manchester, with the sun shining high in the sky and the temperatures soaring.
This means the swimsuits are out.
Mancunians are not usually known for needing much of an excuse to get themselves kitted out in shorts, skirts and t-shirts during the summer season, but not everybody would consider themselves to be ‘bikini body’ ready.
If you’d much rather just enjoy yourself and have a laugh this summer though, then there’s arguably no swimsuit better than one that mimics a hairy chest.
Luckily, Amazon is selling one that’s perfect for the occasion – and it’ll only set you back £16.99.
As bizarre as it sounds, the women’s comical high-cut one piece swimsuit – which is manufactured by the brand RAISVEREN – has made use of 3D printed technology to create this “attractive design” that looks just like the hairy chest of a man who likely boasts the confidence we’re all after.
According to the product description on Amazon, the swimsuit is made from a comfortable cotton blended with spandex and nylon to create a secure fit, with elasticity and a padding bra.
There’s dozens of five star ratings and reviews from satisfied previous shoppers too, including one who admits: “It’s gross and amazing at the same time [and] when it’s on, it looks so real”, adding that it’s “worth the investment”.
So, if you’re looking to channel your ‘uncle nob ed’ this summer, you can get your hands on one of these unique swimsuits from Amazon here.
Looking to pull off the illusion of someone who’s been hitting the gym instead? There’s a bunch of retailers on the market that currently selling half and full-body suits made from 100% medical-grade silicone to give the appearance of abs and muscles.
It’s even crazier to think what the trajectory of this video would have looked if you wound the clock back even by another 10 years.
As you can, not only has the company shown city’s skyline evolves over time, the company recently highlighted both central and Greater Manchester, highlighting the likes of Salford, Salford Quays and Stockport as they continue to grow.
While plenty of people have been understandably concerned over Manchester’s ever-changing skyline, especially post-2020’s Manctopia programme about the local property boom, the money these new-builds and developments have generated in the city cannot be denied.
Not only is Manchester one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe but two different towns in the region have been named among the best places to live in Britain over the past 12 months alone, but the city centre itself was named by Time Out as one of the best locations to visit anywhere in the UK.
It’s no wonder some of the happiest people in the country also live here, apparently.
Just lots of people telling us what we already know: Manchester is mint and thanks to its ever-changing skyline, it’s only looking more attractive to city types.
The Holiday is apparently getting a sequel after 17 years and it’s featuring the original cast
One of the best-loved festive films is apparently set to get a sequel 17 years after the original was released.
There’s no denying that The Holiday is an absolute Christmas classic at this point.
Released all the way back in 2006, the romantic comedy film stars Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz as Iris and Amanda – two lovelorn women from opposite sides of the pond who arrange a home exchange to escape heartbreak during the Christmas season.
However, their lives change unexpectedly when they meet and fall in love with two local lads played by Jack Black and Jude Law.
The Holiday is a film many like to stick on each time the festive season rolls around, and if you’re one of those with it on your watch list each year, then you’ll be pleased to know that the whole cast has reportedly agreed to film a sequel.
According to reports in The Sun doing the rounds today, Winslet, Diaz, Black, and Law are all said to have “signed on” to return.
Filming for the sequel is set to kick off next year, according to insiders.
The insider told The Sun: “The plan is to start rolling on scenes next year, primarily in the U.K. and in Europe, but the main talent are all signed up and on board.
“It’s one of the most successful movies of its kind and still enjoyed every year by millions of fans around the world – it makes perfect sense to revisit those characters and find out what became of their lives after they hooked up.
“It’ll be funny, poignant, and heartwarming – just what everyone wants for Christmas.”
Although the sequel is said to be in the works, it’s all very up in the air at the moment as no further details about the plot have been released.
